About Us

Make your future a successful future

At SUMthing our goal is to provide education and information to a broad variety of people from students to seniors to enhance your knowledge and lifestyle. Do Sumthing for yourself and take one of our courses today.

From the Owner

When I initially started the SUMthing business (while living in Ottawa), the courses were focused on teaching youth basic money management, a skillset that has been lacking for some time.    Once moving to Manitoulin Island there was a need for a different set of courses to be offered, some based on basic money principles, but expanded out to teaching technology to seniors along with a whole host of other classes.

Today I now teach a series of different courses (see the course catalogue), via the townships across Manitoulin Island.  These courses, when offered by the township, are free to attend.  When requested by community groups there is a small fee to attend (with a minimum number of participants required).  I also provided one on one sessions in my private, accessible training centre.  I can also do classes for couples or a small group in the training centre as well. The training centre can handle up to 6 at a time.

I can provide classes to businesses for their staff on how to use the Microsoft suite of products as well.

I look forward to being able to teach you something new.  So do Sumthing for yourself and take a class.  You are never too old to learn Sumthing new.

WOMEN

When I came to the Manitoulin Island with my SUMthing business I did not know what other businesses were here to be able to utilize to support my business.  There was no chamber of commerce, no business network, so I started one in 2018 and named it WOMEN – The Women of Manitoulin Entrepreneur Network – check us out.  This is an organization for women owned/operated businesses on Manitoulin Island that provides information, education, networking and support.
